All our regularly priced used vinyl goes through and 10 minute Ultra Sonic cleaning (the best cleaning) and is then graded visually under bright light, with a partial play grading when deemed nessary.

We encourage you to view all the pictures and read our comments on the conditions, as we find these to be more beneficial than a standard grade. Occasionally we'll use a grade range (ie: VG / VG+) for either vinyl or cover if condition is borderline and hard to stick in one category.

NOTE: We do not grade or mention the condition of original printed inner sleeves (if the record has them) though we will often picture them if included. If this is a concern of yours you can contact us and ask us.


Vinyl - only given to sealed records, or records we personally acquired new, opened them but never played. Of course since the record is sealed we cannot guarantee there are no pressing flaws or minor warping, and since all the sealed records we sell are out of print, we cannot except returns or exchanges on sealed records that have been opened.

Cover - is still sealed.

Near Mint (NM):

Vinyl - a unsealed record that looks nearly flawless.

Cover - may have light typical storage wear.

Excellent (EX):

Vinyl - may have one or two light scuff marks but should play just as well as a NM record.

Cover - has some very minor cosmetic issue, like a light crease, light ring wear, nothing that is very noticeable.

Very Good Plus (VG+):

Vinyl - will look played, may have some scuffs and light surface marks / scratches.  May have light surface noise such as pops, clicks and crackles but it should be occasional and not consistent and not overwhelming. May have light warping but it should not affect the play.

Cover - will have noticeable wear such as ring wear, seam splitting, writing on cover, creases, etc.  Could be a couple items (not all) and they should not be major.

Very Good (VG):

Vinyl - will look VERY played, have lot of marks, scuffs, scratches (possibly deep), play with noticeable maybe even consistent background noise but is still listenable.  May have warping but it should not affect play.

Cover - will have a couple cosmetic issues ring wear, seam splitting, writing on cover, creases, etc and it will be very pronounce.

Good (G):

Vinyl - will play but will have a lot of issues and have a lot of loud background noise.  We will rarely list a record in this condition.

Cover - cover is damaged to a point where it is not usable to house a record. All the seams are split, the panels are moldy, major writing all over, etc.  The only time we'll list a record with a cover in this shape is if it's rare or the record is in great shape.

Orders ship within two business days.

Rest assured, unlike MANY sellers and even large companies, we know how to ship vinyl (and LaserDiscs) correctly! We used high quality mailers, two cardboard stiffners and if the album you are buying is used it is shipped outside the cover to prevent damage to the seams in transit. When it comes to shipping LaserDiscs we don't always ship outside the cover as in transit seam wear is not as common. If you want your discs shipped outside the cover feel free to note that at checkout in the message box.

Multiple discs = multiple records. Four 7" 45's = 1 LP

Domestic Shipping (USA):

Media Mail: $5 flat rate no matter how many records (LaserDiscs) you buy!
Priority Mail: rates vary based on the total weight of your order, and will calculate at checkout unless your order contains more than 6 records (LaserDiscs).

International Shipping:

For international customers we have the following countries and rates setup. If you don't see your country or would like a quote on another method of shipping please contact us for a shipping quote. Multiple record sets count as multiple records.  Any order over 5 records will require you to contact us for a shipping quote. Rates include Insurance.

Customs Fees & Taxes:

Note the buyer is responsible for any additional customs fees or taxes that may be incurred. For customs purposes we only value packages at the purchase amount, we will NOT value them lower. All international orders are insured to protect against damage or loss and we must declare the same value for customs. We also WILL NOT mark items as gifts, this is against the law and punishable to both the buyer and seller. Know your countries laws, and duties / taxes amounts if you're not willing to pay them do not place an order. We will charge a restocking fee, in addition to any other costs charged to us if your order is returned due to refusal to pay any fees required by your country.
